With all the hype about Bruce Jenner’s transition, this transgender former playboy model has a stark warning for ‘Caitlyn’.

Daily Mail – As the first transgender woman to have her own pictorial in Playboy, Caroline Cossey has broken boundaries and fought tirelessly for the transgender community. And while she is thrilled by the outpouring of love and support for Caitlyn Jenner, the former Bond girl has admitted that she is worried the reality star is moving too fast with her transition.

When Caitlyn made her debut on the cover of Vanity Fair in June, unfounded rumors that she had already undergone gender reassignment surgery began to swirl. But as a transgender woman who went through countless and lengthy psychological evaluations before she completed her transition, Caroline has admitted to Daily Mail Online that she is ‘praying [Caitlyn] hasn’t had surgery’ just yet.

‘She looks amazing,’ Caroline said. ‘But everything is being done in such a rushed hurry.’

‘That’s the first thing they asked,’ she said of starting the SRS process. ‘They try to deter you from surgery.’

Caroline said there is a huge difference between being transgender and being a transvestite, and while there is ‘absolutely nothing wrong’ with being a transvestite, confusion can lead to a painful surgery and a lifetime of regret.

‘She is beautiful. She looks amazing,’ Caroline said of Caitlyn. ‘I just want to make sure she is not going down the wrong road.’

Caroline is not only protective of Caitlyn, she is worried about the countless others who may be rushing into SRS as a result of the increased public awareness about transgender people.
